We ate twice at Harilaos during our recent visit to Kardamyli (mostly because things were pretty closed up for winter and there wasn't much else open) and it was very good on both occasions. They were very accommodating for our 2 year old and the food and wine were quite yummy. A typical taverna menu with great prices.

Tzatziki and grilled cheese fir starters. Ok, but nothing more.. Than i had grilled lobster. It was plain and simple, without any extra. Tasted fine, but at that price i expected something more to it. My husband had grilled beef, and i was served with some chips and tomato slices. No sauce, witch made it a pretty boring experience. For... More

We have decided that Harilaos is the best for us after trying four other restaurants in Kardamyli this week. The location overlooking the harbour with a great view of the sunset is idyllic, the service is spot -on and the food very well cooked, of high quality and plenty of variety. Prices are good also. Congratulations to the wait staff,... More

Went here for lunch. We were the only people there to start with which was a bit worrying, but it was No. 1 on TA so thought we would try it. I'm a great lover of squid and we ordered the grilled and the fried but couldn't eat it as it was so tough and chewy I had to spit... More

Well, we read the reviews and decided we had to come. Fish seemed to be the recommended fare and so that was what we went with. We took our seats and marvelled at the view as the sun set over the bay. The thing about sea views is that when it gets dark there is nothing to sea, unless there... More

Not wishing for the usual items, we asked the waiter for his recommendation. We had a local starter, which i cannot remember, but it was very nice. This wss followed by an excellent grilled fresh fish. Despite its modern look, i can recommend this taverna, for its local dishes, and excellent fish - im dissapointed we didnt get a chance... More

Best fish dinner we have ever had and we weren't born yesterday and my husband is from Florida. The most beautiful view and the most charming service. Absolutely lovely.

Wonderful location, fantastically friendly staff, delicious complementary pudding yet came away feeling slightly underwhelmed at quality of food ..... Maybe we made the wrong choices.

We stop for lunch at this excellent restaurant, which offers a variety of dishes and wines. Whether you take a potato and orange salad or several of the other salads, a burger, grilled calamari, stuffed peppers, or typical Mani cheeses, you will not be disappointed. Eating while sitting in the restaurant's terrace that overlooks Kardamily's modest harbour is a real... More

I personally think that this is the best restaurant in kardamilli, concerning a mixture of things: atmosphere, views, service, variety on food. we had a great view where we sat, the restaurant staff was very friendly and very accommodating with anything we asked them. I ordered fresh fish and I really liked it, it was properly cooked and served nicely... More
